House in Sendai-Kasumi by Kiyonobu Nakagame

    18th, 2008

    architects Kiyonobu Nakagame have
    updated their website, showing work including House in Sendai-Kasumi.

    house, overlooking the city of Sendai, was completed in September last year.

    some information from Kiyonobu Nakagame and Associates:

    house sits on the hill top that overlooks the city of Sendai, situated within
    the area called Yakiyama offering magnificent views of cliffs that rise from
    the Hirose River running at the bottom.

    The site
    has an elongated configuration in a North/South orientation, adjoined by
    existing houses on both sides.

    The site
    planning was conceived in relation to the density of neighboring houses and
    consisted of the elongated volume placed along the site and the large garden
    adjoined to it.

    the site descends towards the cliff side the house volume is lifted up,
    creating the gap between them in which the garden, the living room and even
    the marvelous view of Sendai integrate with each another and become a large
    unified site as a whole.

    In terms
    of HVAC, we contrived effective heating systems. Although Sendai is not fully
    a cold district adequate heating devices were still necessary, considering the
    frequent strong north winds blowing up the hill. Hydronic radiant floor
    heating was applied to the entire floor area in the large room on the 1st
    floor. Furthermore, hydronic heating is also provided on the walls in each
    room, creating comfortable spaces with the radiant heat.
